3. Do you want to be an EVALUATOR for the European Commission?

Experienced Indian researchers should seriously consider applying as expert evaluators, i.e. to be part of panels for the evaluation of proposals for research projects submitted under Horizon 2020.  Acting as an evaluator (with EC remuneration) will allow you better understand which criteria characterise a “good” proposal and, during your evaluation meetings in Brussels, will also allow you to network with other high-level researchers in the same field, potentially paving the way for future collaboration. For more information and to apply for such a registration, please visit this link.
We would be glad if you could disseminate this information to researchers and organisations in your constituency / network.  Please feel free to contact us at for any additional information.

Wish you all the best!
